Kufi manuscripts on vellum from 3rd century AH

 

 

 

These two manuscripts exhibit the Kufic script written on vellum. They are dated to the 3rd Islamic century and thought to have been produced in North Africa. Note the coloured dots in the first manuscript to distinguish the letters. The second example shows an elaborate example of the marking between surahs, here done in gold. Both are located in the Tareq Rajab Museum in Kuwait.
